The key will always remain the same. Everytime someone mentions "Sony will change the keys like they did after 3.55" makes me want to just facepalm. It is not going to change unless Sony can put out an update that changes the BD firmware, BD key, and yet somehow keep the BD drive and motherboard paired or married as most of us say.....yeah that sounds way too risky and isnt going to happen even if it were possible. That sounds like a dangerous procedure and I dont think SOny wants a mass wave of bricks showing up that they will have to repair free of charge because their update is the cause. They can update the BD drive firmware by pushing a system update thus making the ODDE also require a firmware update from the team to continue to work properly.
Sony may start banning. That is always a possibility, but they can not stop you from being able to take system updates. You still have the option to update with a USB drive, and I could see the legal issues with them blocking the system from accepting updates which would cause issues with software playback. You agreed to a PSN ToS, I dont think you signed a ToS when you purchased your system
